Re-fund the before and after school child care center which serviced the Champlain Heights Main School.
This center served 50 children (and had a waitlist of 50). It cost the city approximately $60,000 per year to run (most of the costs were paid by the parents).
A safe, affordable, accessible before and after center will allow children to attend school in their own neighbourhood. It will give parents time to bus, car pool or take transit to their workplace instead of driving out of area to drop their children off to childcare or have their children attend school out of their catchment.
Taking funding away from this program was wrong to begin with. The city can correct this wrong by restoring the funding and give themselves a pat on the back by spinning it as a "green initiative."
